rampant hebe

Posted: 23/09/2013 at 10:59

Thanks to all for the replies on my problem.

My hebe is hebe parviflora angustifolia; it's in great shape and has grown consistently over a period of years, but my problem is that all the leaves are near the outer surface of the plant, and that the necessary severe pruning will reveal a lot of straggly bare branches.

Should I just do a series of superficial prunings over the next few years?

I have a rampant bushy hebe which needs a severe prune. However nearly sall the leaf growth is on the surface of the plant, so hard pruning will expose bare stems inside the bush.

How can I cut it back and still leave it looking good?
